The small family feel
Leslie Eddy opened Advanced Hearing Services in 1996, determined to continue helping the Salem community after the company he previously worked for had closed. He wanted to offer the small family feel when customers walk through their doors.
His daughter, Stephanie Eddy, took the helm 12 years ago. Both Leslie and his wife passed away in recent years, and Stephanie has kept the business serving the community with a dedicated welcoming feel.
Getting hearing help for all
“It’s [important] to this particular business, [and] it’s really important to me to treat every person who walks through my doors as if they were my family. People are trusting me with an important part of their life, and not everybody is ready for the kind of help I have to offer,” said Stephanie Eddy. “Another life philosophy for me—and kind of a life mission—is to make sure anybody who needs hearing help is able to receive it.”
Advanced Hearing Services is also mobile—if someone is unable to come to the office, they’re able to bring their services in their entirety to their location.
Eddy also partners with Northwest Human Services and donates her services and hearing aids. “I have an amazing group of customers who donate hearing aids and other items.”
“I appreciate all the support we’ve had not just since my dad started the business, but since my parents [passed]. Just the fact the community has come through and helped, and carried us along the way when we’ve gone through harder times.”
